      • Attachment option: to attach a copy for the bill

        When working in big groups and specially with some people in the group who you do not know too well, it would be good to have a option where in while entering the amount there is an upload bill option. With this all people in the group can see where the money was spent and is the claim genuine.

          This feature is already available on both iOS and Android.

          While adding a bill, look for a camera icon or receipt option, this allows you to take a picture of the bill and attach it along with the transaction. This picture is then permanently recorded with the expense, and is available to all users involved in the expense.

            Update: this is now available on iPhone. To enable, go to the Me tab and click on Passcode. Once you’ve added a passcode, you will be able to use Touch ID or the passcode to unlock the app.

            Yep, great idea, it’s on our list of cool things we’d love to do :) Thanks for submitting.

            • add a feature to see total personal expense in a group

              I have groups made for trips or for certain occasions and what i want to know for my records is how much have i spent on that occasion or trip. Currently, i can see only the break up of how much I spent on each expense item but I want to also see a sum of that, i.e total expense for the entire group as well for each member of that group

                  Update: This is now available on iPhone and Android!

                  We hear you loud and clear! Spreadsheet export will soon be available on iPhone, and a bit later on Android.

                  Right now, you CAN export to spreadsheet but only on the website. You can do this by going to the group/friend in question, then clicking on the settings “gear” in the upper right, then “Export as spreadsheet.”

                  Best,
                  Jon

                • Monthly total expenses

                  In All expenses field we can see the expenses for the month but it doesn't have the total expenses.

                  Instead of manual calculation if you could provide total expenses for every month then it would be great!

                  • Settling up in multiple currencies

                    If you have debts in multiple currencies you can't see how much you owe if the debt go beyond two lines. You also cannot chose what order you want to settle up currencies. This is inconvenient.

                        Update: on all three platforms we now hide settled expenses behind a tap and also hide friends/groups that you have been settled up with for at least 30 days.

                        Whenever you fully settle up with another person, Splitwise should automatically hide all your old bills and clear them from the screen. (Right now this feature only works on the web and on Android, but we’re working on bringing it to our iPhone app ASAP!)

                          Whiteboard is now available in both our Android and iPhone apps!

                          Android: tap the menu icon in the top right corner of your group page.
                          iPhone: tap ‘More’ in the header of your group page

                          Sometimes I EARN money, and I owe that money to my 3 roommates.

                          A bill is when they OWE ME money. A Reverse bill is when I OWE THEM money.

                          You can solve this by letting us do a negative amount for a bill. Thanks!

                            Our website now has additional handling for reverse bills/refunds – when entering a bill, you now have the option to choose “reimbursement” as a split type, which will allow you to distribute money equally between a number of people. (If you try to enter a negative cost in the “Add bill” form, it will now automatically change to the new “reimbursement” split method.)

                            We’d love to add this kind of bill to our mobile apps as well, but it’s not on the roadmap yet. Apologies for the inconvenience!

                            Hope that helps! Let us know if you encounter any bugs, or if you have any other suggestions.

                          • Allow users to filter transactions by their name

                            In a large group, it is difficult to see which transactions you paid for. You need to scroll back through all the transactions to find the specific transaction you are looking for, and even this doesn't quite solve the use case. It would be nice to select a user to see all the transactions he/she recorded (or, optionally, were involved in).

                            • Trip Expenditure per person

                              When I create a new trip, and add expenses.
                              It will be good if I can get a report of how much it costed per person.
                              For ex, total trip expenditure was about $500, and 4 people, assuming, we all shared money equally, the cost-per-person listing will help track travel expenditure.

                                We don’t have a “post trip report” yet, but we do have monthly spending charts in the web interface fro groups (under the trends icon in the far right) and you can click on view full charts to get detailed spending summaries.

                                I'd probably be easier and less confusing if in the amount entry when adding a bill, the decimal keyboard (UIKeyboardTypeDecimalPad) where shown instead of only numbers.

                                  Update: we’ve moved away from the ATM style input field.

                                  I’ll pass on the suggestion! Right now our number input is designed to work more like ATMs and some other banking apps, where numbers fill in from the right as you type. Sorry for any confusion!

                                  I think it would be useful to have splitwise interfaces (web and mobile devices) in different languages as it is a really great tool which should be understandable for everyone.

                                  Maybe starting with common languages like Russian, German, French, Spanish, Italian...

                                    Update: Splitwise is now available in Spanish, German, Dutch, French, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese and European Portuguese. For more information about translations, see http://blog.splitwise.com/about/translators/

                                    We’d love to internationalize, and definitely plan to do so in the future! Right now, Splitwise is still changing pretty fast, and we’re still settling on some of the language that we use in English. Once that’s a bit more settled, we hope to start work on translating into other languages, so that more people around the world can use Splitwise :)

                                    I presume that you are working on Hiding Groups instead of Deleting them.

                                    What i wanna suggest is that if you can provide both the options, Deleting & Hididng, it would be good.
                                    But Deleting should be done only after all the users in that group are Settled Up.

                                      Update: we now hide groups that have been settled up for at least 40 days. You can also still delete groups.

                                      We’d definitely like a better way to handle the closing/hiding of groups, besides just deleting the group entirely. We’ve got a lot on our to-do list, but we’re hoping to add this feature in the not-too-distant future :)

                                      When I went to Cancun, I charged/paid for things at different locations and at each location, there was a different exchange rate for the peso to USD. I would like to suggest a way to set the exchange rate for each item when doing a "trip" group. I ended up having to manually calculate the conversion and split it up each night for a group of 16.

                                        Currency conversion is now included with our premium version, Splitwise Pro (https://secure.splitwise.com/pro/subscribe). Right now, it’s a web-only feature, but we hope to add it to our mobile apps in the future!

                                        On the web, if you click on a friend or group in the left sidebar, then click the settings icon at the top of the right sidebar, you’ll see an option to convert all transactions with that friend/group to your default currency, using the current market exchange rate. You’ll also see a suggestion to convert currencies appear automatically when viewing a group with balances in multiple currencies.

                                        Hope this helps a bit! We’d definitely like to continue improving multiple currency support over time – I can’t say how quickly that will happen, as we’re a very tiny team, but it remains on our to-do list for the future. If you have suggestions or feedback, feel free to…

                                        I like the function to email people in the group to remind them to settle up. Our rent is due on a certain day every month. It would be great if there was a setting to select this settle up email to go out automatically on a certain day each month.

                                          By default, there’s a monthly summary email that goes out to all users on the first of the month. You can also set up an automatic reminder email for a specific bill by going into the date settings for that bill – click on the date, then choose a repeat interval, and you should see an option for sending a reminder in advance.

                                          Hope that helps! If you’re looking for something different, or if I’ve misunderstood your suggestion, let us know at support@splitwise.com – we’d love to hear your thoughts :)

                                          1. When a expense is deleted, a push notification is sent to ios users, however it doesnt say who deleted the expense?

                                          Could you please add this information in the push message.

                                          2. When the push notification is clicked, it should take straight to that particular expense details and not the overview screen.

                                          Please do the needful for our convenience.
